Champion thread, man! There's just so much to look at.

A few comments:

Didn't anyone teach that girl in the photo near the top to cross her legs when sitting. Youch!

I know Portland is a healthy city, but when you're gonna do poutine, do it right. Those fries need A LOT more gravy on them.

What's up with the guy on the boat with the mounted machine gun? Not very Portlandy.


All eye candy, sekkle.

Yes - that one is breathtaking. People/night/building/aerial/still life/landscape shots - all top notch - you can't get much more quality & variety than that.

you know i'm a-clickin' me anything that says "portland" and "sekkle" in the same place. some thoughts ...

- the shot that sabotai reposted was the first one that grabbed me. amtrak's cascade train has to be the most handsome of all the lines in its current fleet.

- that aerial of downtown (and mt jefferson!) is great, but i'm almost certain i'm going to need a print of the aerial of SEP with the freeways and mount tabor right smack in the middle.

- i'm pretty sure we've discussed this, but i'm with giallo: that poutine needs more gravy and less froufrou. champion, pshaw.

- the shot down mississippi toward big pink: nailed it.

excellent as always, m'man.

Lots of wonderfully moody shots. My favorite is the one of Rays Ragtime. Keep it up!

Oh yeah, Portland looks pretty good.

And that poutine definitely needs more gravy.
